FCT Police Command has assured members of the public that normalcy has been restored at Wuse and its environs following a misunderstanding that broke out between operatives of the Directorate of Road Transport Services (VIO) Taskforce and cab operators close to Wuse market.
A press statement by the Command’s spokesperson, DSP Anjuguri Manzah, yesterday in Abuja, said “while the command reiterates its commitment to protect lives and property in the territory, members of the public are advised to always follow the right channel in expressing their grievances instead of resorting to self-help and causing damage to property.”
He said: “Contrary to speculations making the rounds, members of the public should note that no life was lost nor was anybody injured from the fracas and the situation has been brought under control.
“It is also pertinent to state that some hoodlums who were trying to take advantage of the false rumour to cause problem in FCT have been arrested and investigation is in progress.”
The spokesperson said “the command enjoins residents to go about their lawful businesses as adequate security measures have been deployed to protect lives and property in the Territory.”
